The Bad Man Betting team usually upload their EFL League One predictions & betting tips the day before each match. That way we’re ensuring we’ve got the highest quality betting tips for League One, which can only happen if we’re taking the very latest news and updates into account for predictions.
The easiest way to pick an English League One bet is to read through our experts’ English League One prediction and select the games that sound most appealing to you. However, if you’re a bit more adventurous and like to pick your own bets, then we advise you to take into consideration a whole host of different factors.
Team News is an obvious factor in how a game will go. Which teams are without their star players? Are they playing academy players at centre-back and therefore more likely to concede?
Form will also play a part in how English League One teams set up and approach games. A team flying high, winning against teams left right and centre are likely to feel more confident and perhaps be creating more chances. But make sure not to just look at form at a glance, it might be they’ve had a particularly good run against teams below them.
Ground and Fans, particularly in the English lower leagues can be of huge important in picking a successful selection – Footy Stats in 2021/22 showed that the top teams at home created a 30% increase in performances simply by playing at home.
At the start of the season or throughout January, new transfers can make or break teams’ seasons, especially in lower leagues where English Premier League teams may allow youth players to go on loan to experience professional football and develop as a pro.
Other impacts like managers leaving or arriving can also have a significant impact on a team’s fortunes in specific games, especially if they’re trying to get to grips with a new system or are finding themselves in the midst of the new manager bounce in form.
This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what the team here at Bad Man Betting look for when they’re selecting their English League One betting tips, but it gives a good insight into the level of research that goes into each pick.
